Photo Class

Here’s a great resource for beginning photographers (and, for that matter, intermediate and advanced photographers needing a skills/technique brush-up).

These are a collection of lessons Alexandre Buisse did on reddit.com/r/photoclass a couple of months back.

There’s some great stuff in here, including basics such as exposure and metering modes up to more advanced stuff, like composition, post-processing and workflow.  It even touches on the RAW versus JPEG that I alluded to in my previous post.

Shooting in RAW

If you’re even somewhat-knowledgeable about digital photography, then you know what RAW is.  And, if not, you can find out more in this article on Wikipedia.  Basically, it’s the raw, pure data from the camera’s sensor rather than the processed, cleaned-up and compressed data that you get from a JPEG.  All dSLRs and high-end point-and-shoots and bridge cameras give you the option of shooting in RAW and you should, in my opinion, always take said option–it gives you so much more latitude in post-processing than a JPEG.  Want to bring out those shadows or punch up those colors?  You’ll get better results from a RAW image.  Here’s a flowchart I recently spotted on pixiq.com that best summarizes the “why?”:
